Pet Stress Relief
Just like humans, our pets experience immune issues caused by stress in their lives. While human reactions to stress may be obvious, immune system problems for our pets are much more subtle. But according to Dr. Steven Sanderlin, DMV, when a pet is under stress, immune support is one of the FIRST areas of their health to be affected.
Stress in pets is caused by many things, such as being separated from owners, being given a different diet, having to cope with other animals (or humans), or simple changes in regular routines. Ex-rescue dogs have undergone acute trauma in their work; other adopted pets may have had similar experiences leading to stress. Poor nutrition and infections also contribute. Stress can be tough on non-complaining pets.
Thousands of dogs and cats have been taking Del-Immune V® every day for years. As a matter of fact, many of the earliest amazing health improvements due to this product were seen in pets which had not responded to standard treatments but snapped out of their difficulties quickly on DelImmune V®. Now we have developed an even more effective product, based on Del-Immune V®, which combines it with two other immune-supporting ingredients: colostrum powder and whey protein powder. You’ll find technical details on the other side, but this is what you want to know about these ingredients:
Ingredients in Pet Stress Relief™
DEL-IMMUNE V® POWDER
A natural immune modulator, turns on when needed and off when not needed, Del-Immune V® acts as a first responder when innate (active) help for the immune system is needed. This product contains cell fragments from a special strain of lactobacillus, a type of probiotic used for decades to provide immediate support to the immune system. These cell fragments contain biological substances: muramyl peptides, DNA, and amino acids; they account for the triggering of the primary immune support. Del-Immune V® sustains a pet’s daily immune response, starting an immediate attack on any foreign invaders.
FIRST MILKING COLOSTRUM POWDER
This important ingredient of Pet Immune Plus™ sustains the passive, or adaptive, immune system. It’s rich in essential peptides that enhance immune health. Colostrum has been known to be essential to the immune system ever since the first investigations of this biology. First-milking colostrum has especially high levels of immunoglobulins (1g) and proline-rich polypeptides (PRP’s) which are required for normal development and maintenance of immune health. Immunoglobulins are antibodies which attach to foreign invaders in the body, setting them up for destruction by the immune system and thereby sustaining health.
Colostrum works by educating or modulating the immune system so that the host recognizes specific antigens and foreign invaders and then alerts the system to respond to the attack. Colostrum is an ingredient in the first milk of every mammal mother, which is why breastfeeding is so important in humans – animals do it naturally. As in human babies, colostrum protects the health of newborn puppies and kittens, which is why some say that the mother’s first milk is very much like “a baby’s first vaccination.”
In fully-grown pets, the PRP’s boost and modulate the mature immune system. Also known as info-peptides, PRP’s can signal an increase in immune activity, calling for an attack against viruses. Colostrum also contains antibodies, proteins and enzymes which boost your pet’s immune function.
The raw colostrum meets the 2003 Pasteurization Milk Ordinance (PMO) and is only collected from Grade A dairies. It is then tested to assure that is meets first-milking requirements.
WHEY PROTEIN POWDER
Although the use of whey protein by athletes for bodybuilding has been criticized, it has amazing immune-boosting properties, especially for our animal friends. It is easily digested and serves important functions in the body. Many studies have shown the efficacy of whey protein not just for immune support, but also for strengthening of muscles in both animals and humans. It also contains a high level of cysteine, an amino acid which increases glutathione, essential to normal performance of the gut, where 70% of the immune system function occurs. Whey protein is GOOD for your pet!
